Welcoming Messages: 

Welcome from the Dean 

As Dean of the Associate Degree Program, I want to welcome all new 
and returning students to the Doheny campus. A new academic year often 
fills students with feelings of both excitement and apprehension. Aca- 
demic achievement requires good time management, organization, and 
lots of hard work. Please know that our faculty and staff are here to help 
make your college life a success. 

We are blessed with a beautiful pastoral environment in which to work and study. Our historic ar- 
chitecture and gorgeous trees provide an urban oasis for thought and reflection. During this first 
week, I would encourage you to allow our environment to give you both serenity and energy as 
you embark on this fall semester at Mount St. Mary's College. 




Have a great academic year, 



Dr. Patricia Disterhoft

will allow those that sign up for the service to be notified of emergencies via email and/or text message to 
your personal cell phone and college email address. There is no cost to sign up for the service and normal text 
messaging rates will be applied if and when the notification system is activated. Signing up for the service is 
easy. Simply go to www .msmc.la.edu calcrt to create your account. You will be asked to provide your cell 
phone number and service provider. Once you have created your account, you will be redirected to another 
page where you can add your college issued email address. We strongly advise you to add both your cell 
phone number and email to your personal notification account to ensure timely notification of problems on or 
off campus. If you ever receive a message on your cell phone or email from this system, please follow the instructions carefully. 
Periodically during a crisis, updates will be sent out to keep you fully informed. Once the event or crisis has concluded, an all clear 
message will be sent letting you know that it is now safe to resume normal operations. We encourage all current students, faculty 
and staff to participate by visiting w w w . msme . la . cdu, ca Ion and signing up today for the new notification system here at Mount St.

Holy Spirit Mass 
An All-College Event 



Mary Chapel, Chalon Campus 
Thursday, September 11 , 2008, 11:30 am 




We are very pleased that His Eminence, Cardinal Roger Mahony, the Catholic Bishop of Los 

Angeles Diocese, will be the presider for the Mass. Because we will be welcoming 

the Cardinal to Mount St. Mary's College for the first time in many years, 

both campuses will join together for this one celebration. 

Everyone— from Chalon and Doheny, faculty, staff and students— is invited! 

Transportation will be provided. Please watch for information about signing up for the bus. 

Lunch will follow. 

The Mass of the Holy Spirit is a gathering of the whole community and is customarily celebrated at the beginning of the 

academic year, in hope-filled prayer for its deepest success. Since Mass is at the heart of the Catholic tradition of 

spirituality, we set aside a special time for the community to gather and participate in this celebration. 

Classes will be cancelled from 10:30—2:30 pm so that all students can attend. 

We invite everyone to WEAR SOMETHING RED on that day, as a festive tribute to the symbolic color of the Holy Spirit. 



Please send items for Doheny Happenings to dohenyhappenings@msmc.la.edu by Wednesday at noon.

Welcome new MSMC students and welcome back returning 
MSMC students! I hope you all had a 
wonderful summer! Starting college can 
be stressful, and it is a time of many 
changes. You're leaving behind your 
school, friends, home, and entering an 
entirely new environment, making new 
friends, and having new priorities. Here 
are some helpful hints on ways to handle 

some of the changes: 

Give yourself an opportunity to slowly adjust to your new 
academic load and college life! Be patient with yourself and 
others! 

Manage your time 

Set specific and reachable goals for yourself 

Know that CPS (Counseling and Psychological Services) 
is available if you need someone to talk to! 
Our services are free and confidential!

Get the year started right with 
the following academic tips: 

Use an appointment planner 
with a daily calendar. Write 
assignments in your planner 
and record the date you should 
start working on them. 

Keep a separate notebook for 
each course. 



Attend every class. Students who skip classes miss out on 
valuable learning. 

Take advantage of instructor's office hours to ask ques- 
tions about lectures and readings. 

Don't let yourself fall behind. Set regular times for study- 
ing each day. 

Manage your academic anxiety by learning some 
stress management techniques. For help, 
call CPS at ext. 2668. 
Our services are free and confidential.

Student Health Services 

Proper nutrition is extremely important in keeping our 
bodies healthy. Nutrition information can now be found 
everywhere including the internet, media, magazines, 
books, and so on. But how much of what you read or hear 
about is really true? 

There are many different types of diets out there, diets to 
lose weight, diets low in salt, lactose free diets, gluten free 
diets, and the list goes. Many people consult their doctors 
about their diets, but have you ever thought about going 
to a nutritionist? 

Some Reasons to see a nutritionist: 

1. Diabetes 

2. Eating Disorders 

3. Weight Loss 

3. High Cholesterol 

4. You're on a special diet such as low salt, vegetarian, 
lactose free, gluten free 

5. Digestive Problems such as Irritable Bowel, constipa- 
tion, etc. 

Student Health Services is proud to bring back 
an experienced Registered Dietician right to this campus. 

Joy Murosako, RD, MS, CDE, will be here each month to 
help you with your nutritional needs.. We plan to continue this 
service next semester as well. Please note that this service 
is only available to the students. However, if you are 
a staff or faculty member reading this, please feel free 
to refer students to the nutritionist. 

Dates: Thursday, September 18th 
Time: 8:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m. 
Location: Doheny Student Health Center, 
Building #5, Room, C-207 

Appointments will be half an hour to one hour long 
depending on the reason for your visit. This is a 
unique opportunity for you to get nutritional counsel- 
ing, so please take advantage of this offer, by calling 
(213)477-2685. 

Space is VERY limited, so don't delay, call TODAY! 

When you call, please let us know the reason you 
wish to meet with the nutritionist so that the appro- 
priate amount of time is allocated for your appoint- 
ment. 

Hope to hear from you soon.

Who's on The Doheny Campus? 
Where are all these people coming from? 



The Doheny Campus serves many students in a number of varied 
programs. Here's who they are: 

There are about 300 students in the traditional Associate in Arts 

Program. These students attend classes Monday through Friday from 8:00 
a.m. through 6:00 p.m. Most of these students will earn an Associate in Arts 
degree in two years and transfer into the baccalaureate program at the Chalon 
Campus. 

There are about 250 students in Associate Degree in Nursing 

(A.D.N) program. Some of these students take 
classes beginning at 1 2:30 and some are in the eve- 
IhMMH ning cohort whose classes begin at 5:30 Monday 

jp through Thursday. On weekends, they are often seen 

in their nursing whites going out for clinicals. This is 
i also a two year program. 




There are about 62 students in the Masters of Sci- 
ence in Nursing (MSN) program. These students are on campus on 
Wednesday and Thursday evenings and on weekends. A cohort of 1 7 
students are in the bridge program of A.D.N to M.S.N. 







it 



\^> 



There are about 80 students in the Accelerated 
Bachelor of Science in Nursing pro- 
gram. These students have finished their Baccalaure- 
ate degree and, in one year, complete their nursing 
courses. They are on campus Monday through Thurs- ^gl 
days. Their classes start at 7 a.m. 

There are about 90 students in the Doctorate in 
Physical Therapy program. They are on campus 
during the day Mondays through Fridays and some 
evenings 



We're all sharing the campus — parking, food services, study places, class- 
rooms, etc. We're a multitude of programs, cultures, and ages all in pursuit 
of greater wisdom to serve others.

families with lower socioeconomic status. Project THINK offers students interaction with students from grades 3

to use them as a learning experience. 

-Program days and hours: 
Project T.H.I.N.K.: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1st session: 3:15 — 4:15; 2nd session 4:30 — 5:30; Begins mid October

Why do you need sleep? 

-Sleep helps to boost your immune system 
-Improves your memory to better facilitate learning. 
-Improves your mood so you feel less anxious and/or irritable.

f rem THE REGISTRAR'S CEEICE 

Registration for classes for the Spring 2009 semester begins 

Monday, November 10, on Web Advisor. 

Monday, Nov. 10, for Seniors, 

Tuesday, Nov. 1 1 , for Juniors, 

Wednesday, Nov. 12, for Sophomores (students 

with more than 30 units completed), 
Thursday, Nov. 13, for Freshmen (students with 

30 units or less). 

All students have been assigned a time to register. If you did 

not receive the email with your time, call the Registrar's 

Office x2520 and ask them when you can register. 

On Friday, Nov. 14, students can register for classes on the 

Chalon Campus until 4 p.m.. They will not be allowed to 

register for classes at the Chalon Campus until Friday. 

When registering, a class may be full, and you are asked if 
you want to be put on a WAITLIST. You are encouraged to 
add your name to the waitlist so that department chairpersons 
can see how many people want to register for that class. You 
will be notified by email whether or not you are being added 
to the class. 

Students with HOLDS will not be able to register. HOLDS 
can be put on from : 

academic advisors (who will remove the HOLD as soon as 
you have met with them for advisement), 
by the Business office (because you haven't filed some form, 
or taken care of parking tickets, etc), 

by the Student Financing Office (because there is no official, 
completed high school transcript or because a form is miss- 
ing), 

Ask your advisor if you have any HOLDS. Be sure all your 
HOLDS are cleared. 

NO REGISTRATIONS will be taken after Friday, Nov. 14, 
at 4 p.m. until Friday, Nov. 28. This is called a BLACK 
OUT period. During this time, department chairpersons are 
looking at waiting lists and trying to see who can be admitted 
or whether to add another section. Some courses with very 
small enrollment may be cancelled.

Most students experience some level of academic anxiety. However, when anxiety af- 
fects your academic performance it has become a problem. Here are some tips to combat 
£ excessive academic anxiety: 



r o ^ 



•Develop good study habits and strategies. 
•Manage your time (deal with procrastination, distractions, and laziness.) 
•Organize material to be studied and learned. 

•Take a step by step approach to build a strategy and not get overwhelmed by outside pressures of success or 
failure, consequences, peer pressure, competitiveness. 
Review past performances on tests to improve and learn from experiences. 

If you are aware that you have a problem with academic anxiety, try talking about it with your professor before 
any testing begins (and not the hour before!). Also, feel free to stop by CPS to work with someone to reduce your 
anxiety! Our services are free and confidential! 
We are located on the 1 st floor of Mclntyre and we can be reached at x2668 to make an appointment!

Please try and take only two or three napkins 
for your lunch. Some of you are very gener-

your table. Then they don't need the napkins 
so you leave them on the table, and they blow

* Ruminating is a style of thinking where ideas run in circles in your brain. It means obsessing 
about problems or situations instead of moving into action. The problem with rumination is that it 

can lead to anxiety and depression while the problem remains unsolved or may even get 
worse. If you find that you are spending too much time thinking about a problem without taking some 
action, you may want to talk to another person who can give you some feedback that can help open up 
your thinking and will lead to effective action. Friends, family members, teachers, and counselors are 
there to help; just ask! 

If you feel like you need to talk to someone, please contact the Counseling & Psychological Services at 
Ext. 2668 to schedule an appointment with a counselor. 

Counseling is free and confidential

If you are tired of driving long distances and paying high gas 
prices, if you are frustrated with sitting in traffic and if you want 
to enjoy the personal and academic advantages of living on- 
campus, there are a limited number of spaces available in the 
Chalon and Doheny residence halls for Spring 2009. These 
spaces will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis! 

If you are interested in housing, Chalon undergraduate students 
need to contact the Chalon Residence Life 
Office at (310) 954-4325 and Doheny under- 
graduate students need to contact the Do- 
heny Residence Life Office at (213) 477-2661 
to place their name on the Housing Pending 
Status List. 

Residence Life will contact the Office of Stu- 
dent Financing and the Business Office to verify eligibility. 

Each student must be registered full time (12 units or more), 
must not have any holds on her account and must be in good 
standing with the College. 

Once eligibility requirements are complete, we will contact stu- 
dents on the Housing Pending Status List during Winter Break. 
Students must make financial arrangements if they do not have 
enough financial aid to pay for the room via additional loans 
through Student Financing, setting up a payment plan or paying 
the full cost out-of-pocket with the Business Office. Once finan- 
cial arrangements have been verified, students would pay a $100 
housing deposit at the Business Office. 

Don't miss this opportunity to experience living in the residence 
halls.

A PRAYER FOR FINALS 

OGOD, 

It seems as though our lives 

are one test after another, 

weighing us in somebody's balance. 

Save us from taking the coming tests 

too seriously or too lightly, 

but grant that we may reflect 

the best of the work we've done 

and the best of the teaching we've received. 

Amen.

This Week with Campus Ministry 

The CAMPUS CHAPELS are OPEN 
daily from 6:00am until 10:00pm 

LET'S WELCOME Resident Campus Minister Intern 
Jessica Coblentz 

We are pleased to have Jessica joining our Campus Ministry 
team. She will be an additional presence to support the spiri- 
tual life of students at Doheny. We know you will enjoy getting 
to know her! She will be living in House 7, so you will see her 

frequently around the campus. 
Born and raised in the Seattle area, Jessica first came to Cali- 
fornia to study Religious Studies and Women's & Gender Stud- 
ies at Santa Clara University. During her time there she was an 
active participant and leader in campus ministry, social justice 
and gender advocacy, and residence life as both an RA and a 
peer resident minister. She is passionate about the experi- 
ences of young women in Catholicism, an interest she hopes 
to explore through resident ministry opportunities here at the 
Mount. When she's not working at MSMC or the Archdiocese 
of LA where she serves as an intern in young adult ministry, 
Jessica enjoys cooking, traveling, reading, blogging, and play- 
ing outdoors.

Is Fitness and Health in Your New Year's 
Resolution? 

Every January, holiday indulgences and the pass- 
ing of youth seem to unite us to make some new 
year resolutions with diet and exercise. So you get 
excited and set some new goals for yourself. Re- 
search tells us by February, health club operators 
say that the newcomers stop coming in. At least 
40% will quit. Most will try to take on too much. 
You know you had all the right intentions. You 
really want to succeed. 

All you need is to commit to starting a new life- 
style. It's important to set short term goals and 
keep it simple. The KISS philosophy. Start slow, 
very slow if necessary, and go from there. Start off 
with reasonable and attainable goals... maybe go 
twice per week or three times. Try to eat better 
also. Nobody expects you to change every un- 
healthy aspect of your life all at once. Small 
changes over a long period of time will amount to 
great results. 

The Doheny Fitness Center is open 7 days a week. 
Our friendly customer service oriented staff is here 
to help you. We have our Focus Program if you 
need some help as to where to start in a new pro- 
gram. We also have our "express" programs for 
you if time is short. Both swimming pools are 
heated and we even have a towel for you. 

Please check our web page for any changes in our 
hours: http://www.msmc.la.edu/paqes/1771.asp 

Our Fitness Classes are up and running and they 
are 99% full. We hope to see you soon. Good luck 
to all that have taken on a new challenge, goal or 
small improvement to your health.

Did you know that 20-25% of college women experience a 
completed or attempted rape during their college years? Or did 
you know that every 15 seconds, a woman is battered, usually by 
her intimate partner, in America. Again this year we are going to 
break the silence about violence against women at "The Clothes- 
line Project" on Feb. 9-11 at Chalon in The Circle from 10am-3pm 
and Feb. 10-12 at Doheny from llam-2pm 

The Clothesline Project began in 1990 by a coalition of women's 
groups who wanted to educate, break the silence, and bear witness 
to violence against women. Survivors tell their story through art 
and words that are placed on T-shirts. Family and friends can also 
decorate t-shirts to demonstrate solidarity with survivors. The T- 
shirts are then hung on clotheslines on campus for display. There 
will also be a table with educational material on types of abuse, 
consequences of violence, and prevention. It is estimated that there 
are 500 projects nationally and internationally with 50,000-60,000 
T-shirts.

Proper nutrition is extremely important in keeping our bodies healthy. Nutrition information can now be found eve- 
rywhere including the internet, media, magazines, books, and so on. But how much of what you read or hear about 
is really true? There are many different types of diets out there, diets to lose weight, diets low in salt, lactose free 
diets, gluten free diets, and the list goes. Many people consult their doctors about their diets, but have you ever 

thought about going to a nutritionist? 

Some Reasons to see a nutritionist: 
1. Diabetes 

2. Eating Disorders 
3. Weight Loss 

3. High Cholesterol 

4. You're on a special diet such as low salt, vegetarian, lactose free, gluten free 
5. Digestive Problems such as Irritable Bowel, constipation, etc. 

Due to the importance of proper nutrition in our daily lives, 
Student Health Services is proud to bring back an experienced Registered Dietician right to 

your campus. 

Joy Murosako, RD, MS, CDE is here each month to help you with your nutritional needs.. We plan to continue this 

service next semester as well. Please note that this service is only available to the students. However, if you are a 

staff or faculty member reading this e-mail, please feel free to refer students to the nutritionist. 

Doheny Campus 

Dates: Thursday, February 5th, and Thursday, February 19th 

Time: 8:00 a.m. -2:00 p.m. 

Location: Doheny Student Health Center, Building #5, Room, C-207 

Appointments will be half an hour-one hour long. This is a unique opportunity for you to get nutritional counseling, 
so please take advantage of this offer, by calling (213) 477-2685. 

Space is VERY limited. When you call, please let us know the reason you wish to meet with the nutritionist.

With dowries reaching fifty percent of a family's income, second 
daughter is often called "the girl born for the burial pit". This pro- 
gram assesses second- and third- world abuses of women's rights by 
the male establishment and examines how female collaboration some-

rights of hijab, and child

and first year Pre-Health Biology students in the Associate in Arts 
program who wish to continue at Mount St. Mary's College, Chalon 
campus in the Baccalaureate program (you must have completed a 
"Program Change Application"). For information on the guidelines/ 
instructions and how to apply, please go to the following website: 
http://www.msmc.la.edu/pages/4468.asp Questions, contact 
Jeanette Stone, Coordinator, Inter-Program Transfer at (213) 477- 
2559 orjstone@msmc.la.edu. 



Violence, it comes in all shapes and sizes. Whether you are a victim or 
survivor, friend or family member; it leaves its mark. The marks will look 
and feel different for each person and never completely disappear. Tack- 
ling the issues of abuse, violence, and stalking might seem overwhelming, 
but you can make a difference. 

Call the police if you experience or observe abuse, violence, or 

stalking. Don't assume someone else has made the call. 
Support a friend or family member who may be in an abusive 
relationship. They are in a tough situation and need all the support 
they can get. 

Seek support if you are experiencing or have experienced abuse. 
You are not alone and help is waiting for you. 
Don't tolerate mistreatment. Speak up to educate anyone that mis- 
treats others and lead by example. 

Protect yourself. Take a self-defense class or read about trusting 
your fear (e.g., Gift of Fear ). Be aware of your environment and 
potentially dangerous situations. 

Get involved. Volunteer at domestic violence shelters; be a part of 
campus programs. 

Break the silence! It does make a difference. 

Call f2.xt. 2668 to schedule an appointment with a coun- ^ < l ** 



selor. Counseling is free and confidential, you will find us in 
Mc|nture Residence Hall, first floor.

2004, 52 minutes (Arabic Subtitled) 

Schedule 

6:30 - 7:00 Gathering and Refreshments

Meeting Soraida will overturn any preconceived notions you may have about Palestine. In her neighborhood in Ramallah, the women 
do not all wear veils, the men do not rattle off empty political slogans, the young people do not strap bombs to their belts, and the 
children play together like children everywhere. In this city under siege and a strict curfew, she fights her own battle: despite the mili- 
tary occupation, violence and oppression, she is determined not to lose her humanity. In chronicling daily injustices and routine indigni- 
ties- will there be enough water for the plants? Will school be open today? - this powerful documentary paints a subtly devastating 
portrait of life under occupation. Soraida wonders how to reconcile the multiple facets of her identity - as a woman, a mother and a 
committed Palestinian. As a patriot, she is tempted to join the struggle, while as a mother, she is responsible for her two children and 
must beep her distance. 

A $2.00 donation would be appreciated

Having a positive Outlook 

Maintaining a positive attitude can make the stresses of life seem more manageable and less significant. 

If you are finding it difficult to maintain a positive oudook as you work towards finishing the semester, try shifting your focus. 



f^f 






Practice positive self-talk. Notice how you talk to yourself. Are you encouraging or do you get 
down on yourself? 



How is your cup? Is it half empty or half full? 

Find something positive out of everyday. 

Acknowledge when you have completed tasks and assignments. 

Those are accomplishments. & 

Smile! It's difficult to be angry or feel guilty when you have a smile on your face.

In Afghanistan, women live under monstrous oppression by both Jehadi and 
Taliban fundamentaUsts in disastrous situations where most of their basic 
human rights are denied. Education remains restricted and 79 percent of Af- 
ghan women cannot read. Women's healthcare is 
poor and Afghanistan has the second highest mater- 
nal mortality rate in the world. Many women and 
girls still fear attending school, working, traveling or 
appearing without a burqa. Forced marriage, rape 
and abduction remain common.* 

* Statistics provided by UNICEF. 

LOOK at the faces of women in Afghanistan 

Due to forced marriages, women are vulnerable to 

domestic violence. 

Husbands beat, cut and burn their wives. 

The education of girls is banned in over 90 percent of the country. Girls going 
to school in Kabul were ambushed by some men who threw acid on them, 
scarring them for life. 
Women in Afghanistan lack access to basic education and health care. 
They must wear the burqa at all times in public. 

RST 23 (Spiritual Journeys of Women) is working to 
raise awareness about the plight of women in 
Afghanistan. We need your help. Please make a do- 
nation in the boxes provided around campus. We will 
send all proceeds to aid women in Afghanistan. Thank you!

Easter Eggstravangza is coming up April 21 st and finals are around 

the corner. While final exam week is important to your overall 

grades, don't let the stress overwhelm you. Take time to relax and 

this will help you to absorb more and perform better on exams. Here 

are tips on reducing your stress and anxiety while you're getting 

ready for finals. 

Start studying early. Prepare for finals even before the actual week 
of exams. It would be extremely stressful and hard to cram an entire 
semester's worth of information into one or two nights of studying. 
You will get a lot more studying done and even have a chance to re- 
lax if you start early. 

Try to relax. Take mini breaks in-between studying. Close your 
eyes and picture a peaceful scene while you relax your muscles. 

Get enough sleep. Getting 7 hours of sleep each night can refresh 
your mind and help you recover from the stress of studying for finals. 

Take time out for fun. Go bowling, treat yourself to a movie, take a 
walk, write in a journal or stretch. 

Eat well. Try to eat more fruits and vegetables and reduce intake of 
coffee, black tea, sodas, chocolate and alcohol. 

Be confident that you will do well. If you still feel unsure and unpre- 
pared after long hours of studying, talk to someone about it. 

While pressure of finals is unquestionably stressful, the stress reduc- 
tion tips mentioned will help you cope better under stress and feel 
better. 

Good luck on finals. 

If you need more help dealing with time or stress management, 

call Ext. 2668 to schedule an appointment with a counselor. 

Counseling is FREE and Confidential .

Know Your Goals 

The end of the semester is quickly approaching. With all your responsibilities, it may be harder for you to remain on 
track and stay organized in order to pursue your academic goals. Here are some ways you can stay motivated and con- 
tinue working hard to achieve academic success. 

Know your goals. When you can see your goals and imagine what the end results will be, you are more likely to stay moti- 
vated. 







CPS 



r o 



Remind yourself why you're here. Think about your main reasons you are here (i.e. personal accomplishment, making parents proud, getting a 
good job). Keep this in mind when you feel tired and overwhelmed. 

Follow a Plan. You will have an easier time staying motivated when you make a plan and stick to it. 

Stay Organized. Keep your days planned out and schedule time for family and friends. Staying organized will make it easier for you to remain 
focused on your set goals. 

Make time for fun. When you start to feel frustrated and drained, take time out to treat yourself to a movie, take a walk, or exercise. This will 
boost your energy and better your mood, overall helping you stay motivated. 

Good luck on finals! 

If you need more help dealing with staying on track or remaining organized, call Ext. 2668 to schedule an appointment with a coun- 
selor. Counseling is FREE and Confidential . CPS-Counseling & Psychological Services

End of the college year can be stressful with so many responsibilities. Finals are just around the corner and may be starting to 
take a toll on your energy. What can you do? The next time you notice feeling tired and drained, try some of the following ways to relax 
and regroup. 

Do something you love. Taking on an activity you enjoy such as painting, going to the beach or walking at a park 
can help you relax both emotionally and physically. 

Listen to music. Listening to relaxing music can help soothe you when you feel stressed and tense. 

Take a hot shower. Give yourself half an hour in a day to take a long hot shower and unwind. 

Find thirty minutes of 'alone time' in a day. Meditate, write in a journal or do yoga. 

Most importantly, communicate. Talk to people you trust like a friend, roommate or a family member about thoughts and feelings that 
may be weighing you down. 




Although these ideas won't reduce your workload, they will still give you a chance to de-stress and re-energize. 
To find out more information on relaxation contact CPS- Counseling & Psychological Services (213) 477-2668.
